However, now it’s a lot easier to find people using the PDF format instead of the alternatives. There are many jobs that imply working with digital text a lot. Since the digital space is all but fully adopted as the main platform for media of all kinds, editors and writers in general make use of computer software to craft their books, edit their magazines or review their documents. For this, they need reliable software that they can trust in providing all the right features. Here are some of the best perks that make PDF a suitable format for this kind of line of work.
Editorial tools make the jobs easier
Just like correcting or noting things on a text on traditional, physical paper, PDF also offers the possibility of editing a text and having full review control over it. Editors and reviewers can easily highlight text just like a teacher would highlight something on a student’s work. That very same thing can happen with PDFs nowadays, as school assignments are turned in digitally as well. It takes very little “experience” to add or remove highlight from PDF files, meaning that even a novice in PDFs or computers in general can make them out of this modern solution.
Graphic elements and text can be intertwined
If you’ve ever read a magazine for example, or any kind of publication that also contains a lot of images, you have probably seen how the graphical elements are intertwined with text. That’s something you can’t achieve on other formats and it’s one of the reasons why PDFs are so widely appreciated. This allows those that are creating digital media to provide an enticing and attractive reading experience. In fact, using the power of PDF is exactly how magazines, books, encyclopedias and everything in between get digital versions that are 1 to 1 accurate with the physical copy.
Files can combined easily
Want to make a super book out of two books? Or maybe you want to create a special edition of a comic that contains all precedent volumes. Either way, you can combine multiple files with extreme ease using the PDF format. This allows you to extend files and add as much new information as needed. It’s a tool that really comes in handy, in situations like the ones just mentioned and many others. Other formats make it extremely difficult to combine files because elements don’t retain their custom formatting or positioning, and you just get one big sloppy mess. PDFs are cool that way because everything is just as you need to be when combining files.
